Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body's immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells.
This means the fragments of the killed infecting agents create a safe, autogenous vaccination-like response. This further activates and directs your immune system to the specific infections your body is attempting to overcome. The net result is the induction of a secondary kill of these infecting agents throughout the entire body. Treating only 35 cc of blood with UBI induces a beneficial systemic response.
The amount of treatment needed is determined by variables such as the state of health of the patient's immune system, length of time the patient has been ill, and the severity of the disease being treated. UBI can be used clinically as both a SPECIFIC (i.e. psoriasis, lymph cancer) and NON-SPECIFIC (chronic infections, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, etc.) immune modulating therapy, as noted in published studies.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Benefits
- Heightens the body's immune response
- Powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-infection effects
- Improves circulation
- Oxygenation of tissues
- Balancing effect (homeostasis)
- Reduction of tissue pain
- Increased immune and pain tolerance to radiation or chemotherapy
- Cardiovascular protection through increased metabolism of cholesterol, uric acid, and glucose
- Stimulation for production of red blood cells
- Improvement in the flow and properties of the blood

The amount of treatment needed is determined by variables such as the state of health of the patient's immune system, length of time the patient has been ill, and the severity of the disease being treated.
Acute infectious situations typically will be treated with one treatment daily or every other day until improved or resolved.
Chronic situations are treated on a variable schedule, but a typical pattern of treatment would be one treatment two times per week for three weeks, and then one treatment weekly for four weeks.
We initially recommend:
- 3-4 treatments for Infections, Flu and Allergies
- 5-6 treatments for Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue, Shingles, Asthma
- 8-10 treatments for Hepatitis C, Autoimmune diseases, Cancer, MS
It is very important that you.....
We recommend that you drink at least 12-20 oz of water an hour or so prior to your treatment. Also taking an aspirin may help in allowing your blood to flow.
After treatment assist your body in eliminating toxins that will be flushed by this therapy. You should drink 6 to 8 glasses of pure or filtered water daily, primarily between meals.
